    I haven't played the first game. Only had a go at the second installment. I didn't use much of alchemy which made battles more challenging but also more fun. To be perfectly honest though, the only reason i didn't use it was because i kept forgetting! If they go with the same balance in the game, I would say you won't have to worry too much about it. The new big feature in Witcher 3 is the open world system which is new to the series and which I am quite excited about. Hopefully they will find a good balance for quests and loot- especially loot variety which i usually find very lacking in most games in this category. Usually too much focus is geared towards questing which gets old quite quickly if there isn't some great treasure at the end of it.

    Dark Souls had a really awful PC port if you wanted to use mouse and keyboard. I used my ps3 controller so it was all good.
    But yes, its successor is being treated with much more care on all platforms.

    Greetings Cowking.

    @Ducha
    Ya, no release date confirmed as yet. However all interviews I have watched as of now regarding the game and the developers point to a 2014 release date. I'm not too bothered if it gets delayed to be honest. Dark souls 2 is the one I am really looking forward to.

    "We’ve also made it so that pet damage is no longer reflected back to the player."

    FUCK YES!!!!

    That's another hundreds of hours of gaming time for me.
    I am so easily pleased.
    Diablo 3 was made for me.

    Edit-
    And i loled hard at this-
    The resurrection timer in Hardcore remains unchanged. :D

    Quote from proletaria

    So your argument is because a largely disarmed population isn't causing gun crime, a largely armed population would do the same with the onset of legislation? I know you can't be this ignorant. You realize how guns are taken away and exactly how these people react to it. What do you make of the calculus involved there? Do you think it's worth averting disasters (which have other more preeminent causes, as I articulated before) by creating more violence on a daily basis in the form of enforcing such a law?

    No, actually i don't realize it. Why don't you elaborate further- specifically how you think the people will react and how there will be more violence as a result of this law? You can skip this part by reading below by the way. No such calamity will ever happen. That is just pure end-of-the-world-apocalypse logic.

    Quote from proletaria

    I don't have a gun, so again, your ad hominem is a wasted straw vestige of an argument.
    Maybe it's time you read and consider more carefully? You do realize i had already taken note of you not possessing guns and poked fun at it. I am clearly referring to the Amercian population here. If there is anything you do not understand please free to ask instead of being needlessly accusatory.

    Quote from proletaria
    Your illogical assertion that a direct comparison to the UK (which has never seen firearm ownership - ban or not - at a fraction of what the US has maintained through the entirety of it's history) is valid does not make your point.
    You are being sadly very ignorant on this matter. Please go educate yourself. Just a simple article to start off-
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/10220974
    It seems all you know revolves strictly around the US. There is actually a whole world out there with the same species and thus comparable behavior traits.

    Quote from proletaria

    Your only "struggle," for the future appears to be demanding that everyone give their uniformed bothers and sisters increasingly larger amounts of control over their daily lives. If you find this balance of power between the individual and central authority to be illusory, I invite you to wake up to the world around you.
    Again the same thing.
    This keeps being repeated throughout your posts, adding fluff but with absolutely zero substance. This is what I was referring to as paranoia and irrationaly fear since you haven't given a single concrete piece evidence or even constructed a proper and logical argument that would support your pro-gun stance and negate the gun control laws. Those dark hints you've been dropping about government control amounts to nothing more than conspiracy theory and if you are into that kind of thing, you cannot be helped and I will certainly not change your mind.

    Howevever, change needs to start somewhere as has been shown in the UK where national tragedies have pushed the needed legislation in place. Same thing has occured in Australia where the change has been more recent and with just as much effectiveness.
    And no, the population in neither countries has gone crazy like you keep fearing when their toys were taken away from them nor have their governments turned like the regime in Syria or N.Korea.

    You find it amusing?
    Is it also amusing that there are currently no dead school kids here in the UK because somebody flipped?
    No dead movie goers or dead shoppers?
    You know what, i can definitely get used to this degree of comfort.

    You don't want to let go of your guns out of irrational fear. Simple as that.
    Comparing with the UK is completely valid because it is still human beings that are involved and history of gun ownership is utterly irrelevant.
    We need to consider the legacy for the next generation. I would rather not leave them in the climate of an imaginary power balance strugggle that you currently think exists.

    Quote from proletaria

    What you ask for when you so mock anyone against gun laws, is for guns to be used by the state. Not simply against the criminals who would use their guns (legal or otherwise) against us. Not simply against those "rednecks," who currently defend their right to own such a weapon. But to be used against the body of the entire nation. Prohibition of the means of murder in the hands of private citizens is laughable when the most prevalent group of murderers on earth wear blue or green uniforms and march under the orders of the state itself.
    This is what paranoia reads like.
    The problem is not guns (per say) but the rotten gun culture supported by the second amendment. Where else among the top democracies in the world do you see such rampant gun violence?
    Doesn't matter whether you wear blue or green uniform because if the other side has guns, it becomes a survival game. Shoot first and ask questions later because your life is on the line.

    Quote from proletaria

    And how, my dear, do you believe the evil of guns is to be eradicated from the face of your beloved nation? Do you think legislatures will write magical runes upon the parchment of a new constitutional amendment and cast the vile concoctions of metal, plastic, and carbon fiber into the dark abyss from whence they came? Do you believe that no man, woman, or child will be beaten, shot, tortured, or jailed over increasing questions of firearm legality?
    There are some powerful magical runes here in the UK. We usually call them gun control laws. And you know what? They kinda work...
    I know, that's shocking.

    Quote from proletaria

    I will concur with you that nobody is made the safer by arbitrarily doling out guns or security guards carrying guns. However, the ignorance subsumed within the argument that the private ownership of guns is the root of all violence, or that the prohibition therein would make the world a better place... that is simply inexcusable. I don't own any guns. But I will be damned if I join the chorus of sophists convincing a frightened nation of parents and students that the answer to their problems is disarming legal gun owners and empowering the most corrupt and deadly gun owners in our society: criminals, law-enforcement, and the military.
    You are surviving without guns? My goodness...Rambo would be proud of you.
    Or maybe they not attacking you because they assume you have a gun? Currently, people who have trained in firearms and combat with possibly some killing experience are hesitating and doubting their abillity to murder you because you might have a rifle in your basement.
    True jungle out there.
    My admiration for all the US members on this site has just climbed a notch higher. I did not realize that each day you guys post here might be your last. Keep the fight and battle alive my brothers.
    As soon as the UK stops having such tight gun control laws and it seizes oppressing its citizens, i will buy a gun and join the fight. As long as people don't shoot back at me that is.

    The second amendment is crucial because:

    And remember- if you are a good guy, you will be able to do this:

    So yes, let's give everybody guns and make the world a safer place.


    Also kudos to those absolute badasses who procted their students. True heroes.

    UK not US. :)

    Had a research internship over summer holidays which i decided to focus on. Back at school now. We have like two and half weeks off december-january and then back at it again.

    And yes, you are right, WD has been my choice way before playing. Will probably play with all chars on normal before trying to get to the higher difficulties and level.

    I just found wirt's original leg with the wizard I am playing. It has its own description but listed as a blue item. Does it have any hidden use?

    Ya, have busy with school.

    I just finished the game (on normal) with the WD. It was real fun. I will probably do another character before i tackle the higher difficulties.

    Fascinating how they made each level-up so meaningful. Me gusta.
